Oats (66)      Golden syrup (8)      Black Treacle (2)      Parkin (1)     


Parkin is a favourite in northern England, particularly in places like Yorkshire and leads. It is an indulgent teatime cake with oats and lots of sticky syrup. As it is a type of teacake, Parkin is usually baked in a loaf tin or square baking tray, but on this occasion I made into one big honking cake. Based on the ingredients I used, each slice is about 398 calories, so is not for those watching their waist line. If you bake it in loaf tins or baking trays, however, you will cut them into smaller slices, and therefore cut down on the calories as well.

Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 1 hour (for a large cake - it will need less time if using loaf tins or baking trays)
Makes: 1 large cake, (or 2 loaves or 4 tray bakes)

Ingredients
200g plain flour
25g semolina
100g soya butter
100g Xylitol sweetener (caster sugar if you prefer)
100g porridge oats
125g fruit muesli
175g golden syrup
175g black treacle
1 large egg
2 tsp baking powder


Method
Pre-heat the oven to 180 ༠C/ 160 ༠C fan/350 ༠F/4 Gas.
Mix the flour, semolina, and baking powder together.
Rub in the butter for a breadcrumb consistency.
Mix in the oatmeal and sugar, and create a well in the centre.
Gently heat the syrup and treacle in a sauce pan, then pour into the well and stir in.
Beat the egg into the mixture.
Spoon the mixture into a tin and bake.
